Wesley Crusher

Wesley Crusher is a fictional character on the science fiction television series Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The son of Jack and Beverly Crusher, he's a bright young man, who's almost too intelligent for his own good. He first arrived on the Enterprise D with his mother right after Captain Jean-Luc Picard assumed command. Picard realized that he understood many things beyond his age and appointed him an acting Ensign. He matured over the years and eventually entered Starfleet Academy. Starfleet wasn't to be his destiny as he participated in an incident where a fellow student was killed. During the year he had to repeat before graduating, he became restless and bored with his studies.

While visiting the Enterprise, he met The Traveler who helped him transcend space and time and achieve his true potential. Wesley Crusher was played by Wil Wheaton.

Many viewers found the character intensely irritating. There was at one point a newsgroup alt.wesley.crusher.die.die.die .
